Cole Hamels goes for his first win Tuesday as the Phillies aim to rebound from an ugly 3-0 loss to the Blue Jays the night before.
And he'll be pitching on a full week of rest, after having his start pushed back two days because of the flu.
Drew Hutchinson (1-2, 3.82) takes the mound for Toronto. He's coming off his longest outing of the year in which he gave up four runs in seven innings against the Royals.
The Phillies, whose bats have fallen into yet another slump, have scored just 14 runs over the past six games. During that span, they're 7 for 47 with runners in scoring position.
Luckily, Jimmy Rollins is expected to be back after having yesterday off, so Freddy Galvis can reassume his spot on the bench.
Hamels has never beaten the Jays, although he hasn't faced them since 2010. He's 0-2 vs. Toronto with a 6.75 ERA in three starts.
• A win for Hamels would be the 100th of his career.
• Ex-Met Jose Reyes, who led off Monday with a homer, is 14 for 24 vs. Hamels since 2010.
• Key matchups for Hamels: Jose Reyes (22 for 56, 6 2B), Melky Cabrera (6 for 17, HR), Jose Bautista (1 for 6, 3K)
• The Blue Jays have yet to win three in a row this season.
